This is a chance to make a real difference for an abused or neglected child. We will give you all the training and support you need to become a child's advocate. You will join a corps of amazing CASAs, be assigned a child's case, investigate the facts, speak to the court on the child's behalf (our judges WANT TO HEAR FROM OUR CASAS), visit the child in foster care or their placement, and make sure the child is getting everything they need to be healthy and whole. You will be the only un-paid person in this child's life during this time; making a profound impact on their life.

Must pass a background check, screenings, successfully complete training, and be 21 years or older. Ongoing training is also required along with a two year commitment--the average length of a child welfare case (sometimes shorter). Call our office for more information, come for an orientation, we have children waiting for CASAs.

Mission Statement

The mission of CASA of Jackson and Josephine Counties is to provide specially trained community volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in the pursuit of safe and permanent homes.

Description

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) screens and trains every day people to become extraordinary advocates for abused and/or neglected children in Josephine County, OR. Each child who is the victim of abuse or neglect deserves to have their voice heard in court and beyond and to have one un-paid person by their side for the duration of their case. A child who has a CASA is less likely to slip through the cracks of an overburdened system and to suffer re-abuse. It only takes 5-10 hours a month to help a child who is waiting.
